Rubrik Cloud Data Management: Security by Design

Since the beginning, Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform has been designed with security as one of its core principles. Our goal is to ensure that data is managed in a secure and responsible manner, independent of its location. This capability is growing more important with the changes to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect on May 25, 2018, for any organisation that processes or stores data from individuals in the EU. For companies that must comply with GDPR, security by design is imperative in data management. The regulation requires companies to use solutions in which data protection is designed into the development rather than added on at a later point. Requirements apply to on-prem and cloud environments, as well as to measurements that prevent employee-caused breaches. Data Management Designed for Protection Rubrik delivers end-to-end encryption across all environments while maintaining performance. It starts at the point of ingesting the data from your production systems. For both virtual and physical environments, we encrypt data in-flight to protect it from eavesdropping. Once the data arrives to the Rubrik cluster, customers can choose the method for encryption at-rest, either using software-based encryption or FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certified hardware-based encryption. Rubrik also…

Designed for Security: Introducing Software Encryption at Rest

There’s been a lot of buzz around the recent launch of version 3.1 of Rubrik Cloud Data Management. As our 7th product release, this version introduces a variety of rich new features to our platform that help make data management even more comprehensive. In previous posts, we discussed Rubrik Envision, which delivers visual data for platform analytics, and support for physical Windows servers. Version 3.1 also bolsters our security capabilities by adding software encryption for data at rest. The update is available on the r300 appliances, which ship with a built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip. Rubrik already supports hardware-based encryption on r528 appliances. So, now customers can enable data-at-rest encryption across Rubrik appliances, as well as role-based access control, to protect their data. Here are some of the key benefits our software encryption feature delivers: Comprehensive Protection We use AES 256-bit encryption to protect all of the data associated with your Rubrik cluster. We encrypt all files in Atlas, Rubrik’s cloud-scale file system. In addition, metadata, logs, and generated stats are encrypted. Simplicity Software encryption for data at rest is supported for the r300 appliance series. It is easily enabled at bootstrap and requires no user intervention thereafter. It…
